It’s Friday, so here’s the video for “I Rhyme the World in 80 Days” by Kish

These days, Andrew Kishino makes a decent living as a voice actor. But back in the day, when he was known as Kish, he made a notable dent in the world of Canadian hip hop. Specifically, he scored a hit in 1991 with “I Rhyme the World in 80 Days.”

Sadly, not much followed in the way of a solo career. Kish released one more single, “She’s a Flirt,” before heading down to Los Angeles and getting into music production. But this track remains a classic, at least among Canadians who spent a lot of time watching MuchMusic twenty years ago.

If nothing else, when you think of Japanese Canadian MCs, you think of Kish. Have their been any others, really? Am I forgetting anybody?
